Study of puzzling fossils confirms they came from an animal

Sep 20, 2018

NEW YORK — Scientists say they've confirmed that puzzling fossils from more than 500 million years ago are traces of an animal. That would make it one of the earliest known creatures. The fossils are impressions in rock: oval shapes with internal lines, looking somewhat like a leaf imprint densely packed with veins. First described in 1947, they are found in Australia and Russia and range in size from a fingernail to some 4 ½ feet (1.22 meters) long. The mysterious organism that made them has been dubbed "Dickinsonia." But what was it? In the past, scientists have suggested it's...

BOSTON — The Latest on foreign targeting of senators' email accounts (all times local): 1:55 p.m. A Google spokesman says the company has notified an unspecified number of senators and aides that their personal email accounts continue to be targeted by state-backed foreign hackers.

Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon initially disclosed the persistent targeting on Wednesday in a letter complaining that the Senate security office has refused to help defend the personal accounts.

Lawmaker: US Senate, staff targeted by state-backed hackers

Sep 20, 2018

Foreign government hackers continue to target the personal email accounts of U.S. senators and their aides — and the Senate's security office has refused to defend them, a lawmaker says. Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, said in a Wednesday letter to Senate leaders that his office discovered that "at least one major technology company" has warned an unspecified number of senators and aides that their personal email accounts were "targeted by foreign government hackers." Similar methods were employed by Russian military agents who leaked the contents of private email inboxes to influence the 2016 elections. Wyden did not specify...

Lawsuit renews focus on privacy policies for mobile apps

Sep 20, 2018

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Researchers have warned that many popular free mobile apps aimed at children are potentially violating a U.S. law designed to protect the privacy of young users. Some brushed off the findings, but a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday by New Mexico's top prosecutor is renewing focus on the public's growing concerns about whether information on online interests, browsing and buying habits are slipping into the hands of data brokers without their consent. And there's not much parents can do, experts say. There's no easy way even for a fairly savvy user to figure out whether an app is...
